World Thinking Day


World Thinking Day Each year on February 22, World Thinking Day, girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries. World Thinking Day not only gives girls a chance to celebrate international friendships, but is also a reminder that Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a global community-one of nearly 150 countries with Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.


The theme for World Thinking Day 2012 is girls worldwide say "we can save our planet." Your Girl Scout Junior can participate in this global holiday by earning the official award here.

Rock the Dam Registration Now Open


Rock the Dam with Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada! Join us for a symbolical bridging across Hoover Dam as we honor the past and welcome the next century of Girl Scouting. Rock the Dam, commemorates the historical beginnings of Girl Scouts in Southern Nevada by gathering where it all started in 1932 with 22 girls in Boulder City.


Participants will kick off the celebration in one of ten designated decade areas that reflect an era of Girl Scout history. Girls, alumnae, and volunteers will celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouting by exchanging S.W.A.P.S. they create to represent one of these decades.  Click here for more information.

Junior Journey: Agent of Change 


Agent of ChangeA great way to celebrate World Thinking Day is to take a Junior Journey. This Junior journey is filled with fun and friendship. From its start to its closing celebration, the girls will move from a deeper understanding of themselves to exploring how powerful they are as a team, to realizing the added strength they gain by reaching out in the wider community to take action with its members.  


Agent of Change offers girls a chance to earn three awards:

  • The Power of One Award, girls will discover and share the powerful story of a forgotten woman or girl from around the world who mobilized others and made a difference, discover all the ways their own strengths and powers help them create change in the world, and discover what the Girl Scout Law and true ''heroines'' have in common.
  • The Power of Team Award, girls connect with their Girl Scout crew to create a ''super girl'' story in which the characters take one small situation they care about and strive for long-lasting community change. Girls will also make a team decision and write their team hopes for a Take Action Project that reaches into a community network to solve a problem together with community members.
  • The Power of Community Award, girls take action on their plan, reach out, join others and get them involved, and start something that snowballs into a change in their world. Girls join in their Girl Scout Junior circle to reflect on what they accomplished and celebrate it.
